The first release candidate of FreeBSD 9.0 (RC1) is now available. Although several weeks behind the original schedule, the waiting is usually worth it:

The first RC build for the FreeBSD-9.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the architectures amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64, and sparc64 are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites. One of the many new features in 9.0 we would like to be tested is the new installer, so we encourage our users to do fresh installation on test systems. Alternatively, users upgrading existing systems may now do so using the freebsd-update(8) utility.

Thanks, David (Rodgers), you were the first to notify me. If you come across anything FreeBSD related, let me know. It would be great to link to some useful posts and FreeBSD related products and/or companies.
